March in the North East
Our 2020 calendar takes us on a picturesque tour of some of the North East’s most cherished villages, bays, castles, countryside scenes and more. The calendar features a selection of specially commissioned photographs by the acclaimed Aberdeen-born photographer Ray Smith, who captures the location in which we work and live in a unique and engaging way.
Our third calendar image of 2020 showcases the delightful village of Crovie, situated on a remarkably narrow ledge between the cliffs forming the east side of Gamrie Bay and the sea. In fact, it’s so narrow there is only room for a row of cottages and a footpath.
In this blog, we take a look at some of the events being held in and around the North East in March.
